[video clip] >> our policy is not containment. it is to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. we have also made clear that the iranian leaders need not sentence their people to economic isolation. there is still time and space for diplomacy, backed by pressure, to succeed. the ball is in the government of iran's courts. host: if we were able to begin negotiations with iran and its intentions for to ease between the u.s. in iran, which became a huge problem to present jimmy carter in 1979 with the hostage situation, if we make progress, how would that use the entire neighborhood and countries around iran and afghanistan? guest: it depends on how the israelis interpret this. the israelis believe they have more to fear about iran's nuclear capabilities and the rest of the name of the. i have read -- than the rest of t
steadily. everybody knows where everybody stands so let's have a vote on it. >> i want to play what john mccain said this morning. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this raises the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another cadgeal to beat up republicans to get political advantage in the next election. >> who and/or what do you believe is behind the leak? >> it is interesting what senator mccain said about the next election because president obama was just reelected. house democrats would like to win back control of the house and they look at this as a political tool for them. there is a plan floating out there and they are talking to different groups. they are not really talking to republicans on capitol hill as senator mccain is pointing out. the nitty-gritty particulars of these two proposals that are out there, the gang of eight that senator mccain is a part of, the principles there are not all that different from what is in this draft legislation that was leaked to "usa today." the problem is it is all a
, he did not. he realized that he could outraise and spend john mccain in 2008 and so he went back on his words there. he took corporate money into the inaugural committee. i don't care that he's flipped his campaign into a c-4 and going to do political operation toss help his agenda, but let's be honest about it. instead, he's a hypocrite and now, his left wing, you know, allies who have been very supportive of him over the last several years are now coming out to say, well, he really shouldn't do this. but, the hypocrisy is so thick, it's dripping, it's kind of entertaining. >> and citizens united whether you could spend money on elections and a candidate, right, and this -- and this group is going to take money to push an agenda, to push policies which there is a difference in that legally, but this group. >> oh, certainly. >> megyn: but this group, you refer to it as the c-4, that's not-- that's a tax exempt organization and there are already some republican lawmakers saying, all right, if you're going to take unlimited corporate donations into a tax exempt entity that exists s
, and on the senate side, you definitely see some of those were traditional republicans like senator john mccain, snorkeenator kelly ayotte of ne hampshire where we can't make the defense cuts clear. there's a divide, and it's unclear exactly how they're going to bridge the gap there. >> dana, this divide, how dangerous is it for an entire party that's really trying to reinvent itself after the november loss. >> it is a pretty serious one. you see a lot of the green eye shades republicans here in washington aren't listening to the governors. the more popular officials and their party saying, look, it's important to rein in spending. that can't be the sole label for this party. when you have so many washington republicans saying the budget cut is even more important than national defense, there seems to be -- i think we're finally reaching a level where there is some push-back. and so there is a more serious division than had occurred in the past when it was all about budget cutting. >> do you think, lauren, we're going to get a final deal on sequestration, or are they going to kick the can down
at the faces we see of the republican party, the lindsey grahams, the john mccains, the john boehners, they're angry old men. they're not appealing as human beings. forget issuewise. and clearly the democrats have barack obama. and i want to come back to a debate that we were having. you've covered president after president. it doesn't matter how they shift on the issues until they have the right delivery system, the right human beings who are not tone deaf to an attitude that this country wants. they're never going to get back. ronald reagan got that. to your point earlier, john connelley didn't get that, joe. we said this off the air. that's why he was not elected president. i think it's all moot until they change literally and figuratively the faces of the party. >> well, it can't be just the cosmetics, however. >> not cosmetics, but humanity. >> a combination of the two, it's about the subject matter they're dealing with as well as the manner in which they present it. ronald reagan -- my favorite story about ronald reagan was when he was in a deep recession, they decided they had to do
. she worked with the transition operations of presidential candidates barack obama and john mccain, and with a team representing george w. bush. i will reform the -- i will refer you to your programs for more information on her publications. proudly, i can say she is a proud member of the board of directors at the white house historical association. >> thank you. we have a wonderful panel here that represents people who have worked in the white house over several administrations in the residence staff and people who have come with particular presidents and first ladies. if through our discussions we will get a sense of the environment that a first lady operates in. it is a difficult place to be. in some ways it is as beautiful. as the white house is it has many different roles. it is a museum, it obviously is a residence, it is a park, and it is a workplace. all of those combined -- for the first lady it gives opportunity for her and her husband, and also some hazards as they live their lives in the white house. it is also a place for children, a place to raise a family. with a fir
ground and work together as adults, john mccain's calling him an ex-republican. >> stephanie: they cannot get over he was right about iraq. >> oh, totally. >> stephanie: remember representative walter jones, republican of north carolina? he was the freedom fries guy. that guy. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] he suggested to a libertarian group that former vice president dick cheney will end up in a fiery place for his role in the iraq war. he said congress will not hold anyone to blame. lyndon johnson is probably rotting in hell. he probably needs to move over for dick cheney. >> stephanie: that's freedom fries. >> i want to send that guy some french fries. where can we send them from? with a copy of an -- a biography of thomas jefferson about the time he spent in france reading the koran. >> stephanie: tony in florida you're on with hal. hi tony. >> caller: how are you? >> stephanie: good. >> caller: good, can you hear me all right? >> stephanie: yep. go ahead. >> caller: i didn't know if you had seen anything yet but collier county, florida which is down south florida naples area -- >>
